    Lowcountry Cajun Festival

    Sunday, April 2, 2017

    Bringing Louisiana to the Lowcountry, the Lowcountry Cajun Festival is a full-day of Zydeco music, Cajun and Creole foods, kids activities, and all around ragin’ Cajun fun! Savor the tastes of authentic Cajun and Creole fare - jambalaya, alligator, etouffe, andouille sausage and of course, crawfish, crawfish, crawfish! Also enjoy Lowcountry favorites like seafood and Southern barbecue. For those who prefer a tamer menu, we’ll serve up ample portions of festival foods like hot dogs, sno cones, and more. Visitors travel from near and far for huge servings of fresh, steaming crawfish, undoubtedly the festival’s most popular food item.
